Cheap solution for websites!

Happy Monday everyone…!

I was wondering if someone could give me some help. So, last year, i bought my domain for my music buisness on GoDaddy and built a website and spent ages uploading and writing content. Well GoDaddy started taking more than $12.99 (pounds not dollars I don’t have pound sign on my mac) per month from my account and then took payments out without me authorising for things like marketing etc which I didn’t sign up for. Anyway, I had an argument with a guy from GoDaddy and he refunded me some money taken but deleted my whole website so everything I bloody wrote went.

Oh God i’m boring myself by this stage. ANYWAY, I was wondering if someone could point me in the direction of a company that doesn’t charge an awful lot of money a month. i just want something simple and I don’t mind building myself but due to Covid all my self-employed work is currently cancelled so

Sorry I couldn’t finish then. My cat has become beyond clingy.

Anyway, can anyone recommend a good website builder where it won’t cost an awful lot. I have a domain!

squarespace :slight_smile:


thanks Nav!!!

I spent a long time researching website/domain providers and went with Squarespace because their fees are very transparent, unlike GoDaddy who have lots of add ons that cost extra. I also like how customisable squarespace is.

Thanks…that’s what I didn’t like about GoDaddy, they just took money out without my permission and it unnerved me. I asked if I could take the website offline during Covid because I lost work and needed to keep costs down and the guy said because they’re American they couldn’t do that, he was just rude and put me off.

That’s really shit. I guess they don’t care about good customer service. I’m beginning to sound like an ad now but squarespace lets you publish and unpublish your site as you like. I took months writing content for mine before I published it. They also have advisers who are really helpful with design and functionality questions. I think Wix is meant to be pretty good too.

Ah that’s good to know about having the control to take it offline etc. I’m on there now, looks very good. Thanks again to you both!

Squarespace are great. I’ve always historically used Siteground (pricey, but 15+ years customer) for big projects / work. Ionos are alright for cheap small things, but good luck with any customer service

Thanks! I did look at Wix and Ionos too but think i’ll stick with squarespace for now!
